First one done for '13! This one has a Mustang II front suspension (nabbed from a Monogram '37 Ford), wheels and carbs from the Revell Tweedy Pie, and a scratchbuilt finned cylinder head. Started out as the Teague stock car kit.

That's really cool... but I can't help but think it would have looked even better with a white roof (to complement the wide whites)...  ;)

 

Looks like you highlighted the grooves in the foiled areas somehow? Nice touch, it gives a more realistic depth to those areas.

Nice!  Where'd you get the hood ornament?  Love the WW, 5 spokes, and 6 shooter.

That looks just perfect! Love the stance, wheels/tires, and the mill. Period perfect.
